Thème – Nouer des liens, du champ à la cafétéria
Lors de cette séance, nous explorerons le modèle de carrefour alimentaire régional adopté par Farm to School BC pour transformer les systèmes alimentaires scolaires, et plus particulièrement le rôle des animateurs communautaires en tant qu’agents de changement. Les conférenciers présenteront leurs expériences et apprentissages en animation communautaire en donnant des exemples précis de leurs régions (Vancouver, Kamloops, Capital et nord-ouest). Les participants se livreront ensuite à un exercice de « méchantes questions » pour explorer certains des paradoxes auxquels se heurtent les animateurs communautaires dans leur travail.

Talk to me about Farm to School in the Kamloops region, as well as the Kamloops Food Policy Council. I am interested in enabling food literacy in the classroom, food policy implementation and advocacy and food justice in this movement.
